Thanks everyone for the welcome messages.
Yes, it will be very interesting to compare the devices. I do really like my iOS devices and they have some great apps. iOS is really easy to use and since I am often tech support for family and friends, I tend to recommend iOS devices to them. I might find the same is the case with Android, I am yet to find out....but my point is that I had an iPhone, so family all went for iPhones too so as I could help them with them when they needed help.
Some comparisons between the two would be interesting....but it kind of feels like I'd be asking for trouble. People have very strong opinions on that, one way or the other.
LanceJ....how did you go with pickup of your Nexus 7?
